Sausage Stuffing Balls Recipe

My favorite cornbread stuffing, made with chicken sausage and tons of sage, and then baked into stuffing balls for a beautiful presentation. The perfect addition to your holiday table!



  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 cup celery chopped
  • 1 apple chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh sage chopped
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 pound sweet Italian chicken sausage or sub pork sausage
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 4 cups cornbread cut into cubes
  • 1 egg




  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, add butter, onions, celery, bell pepper, and apple. Saute for about 15 minutes until very soft.
  2. Season the vegetable mixture with salt and sage. Add the sausage, and continue to cook until sausage is cooked through.
  3. Add the apple cider and chicken broth, and simmer until the liquid is reduced to half.
  4. Add the cornbread, and stir well to combine, then remove from heat.
  5. Once the mixture has had 5 minutes to cool down, add a beaten egg, and then stir to coat.
  6. Bake in the Sharp Superheated Steam Countertop Oven for 15 minutes on 400 degrees F.
  7. Serve as a side at a holiday meal, or as a main course for a festive winter dinner.

Superheated Steam Countertop Oven

The Sharp® Superheated Steam Countertop Oven is the start of a cooking revolution. The innovation is simply that steam can be hotter, cook better, and promote healthy living. The combination of superheated steam and conventional, radiant heat in all cooking modes means that your food will be crispy and browned on the outside, moist and delicious on the inside.

The Sharp® Superheated Steam Countertop Oven is a powerful, low-profile, pizzeria-style oven. Roomy enough for a 12″ pizza or 9 slices of toast, the included Broiling Pan and Crisper Tray (12.5″x12.5″) give you more cooking area than a standard quarter-size sheet pan.
